. one of the things that steve has worked on a great deal, and i do not want to take away his thunder, a look at how americans will stay competitive -- if we look at how america will stay competitive -- i hear your phone -- [laughter] the question of whether or not a merkel be able to compete, whether we will be able to make investments, are we -- are we going to be able to have the kind of innovation that creates jobs? north of 80% of the net new jobs made in america in the last 20 years have come from start-ups. where had the talent come from? disproportionately from a first generation americans. we are very lucky particularly in northern virginia, which rivals only the silicon valley in terms of the number of tech- related startups, you look a little deeper, and a 1 1/3 of the tech startups in northern virginia had one of the co- founders or founders as a first generation american. the numbers in the valley are even higher. how do we maintain that? one is talent. i will come back to that in a moment. another piece of this which we think is very complementary and something that stev

the news wires. what we heard earlier from steve harrigan there is a situation developing outside the presidential palace. what the news wires are telling us is that some of the protestors that are protesting president mor morsi have broken through the police lines near the presidential palace and they are being met by teargas and opposition from the police. why the situation is one that we are continuing to watch so closely is whether or not the people in the streets, the demonstrations reach a level of violence, because the big question for the egyptian government is what is next here? if the people continue to protest the constitution put in place by the president, that may or may not be ratified in a few weeks, what is next for this country? so we'll continue to watch the developments out of cairo, egypt today, bring you updates as we get them. jon: the blue angels navy stunt flying seem seems to be channeling santa claus you might say using one of its cargo planes to fly donated toys out to the many families still reeling from the devastation of super storm sandy. jonathan se

a short show because the house is coming in at 9:00. steve in gaithersburg, maryland, a republican caller. caller: host: when did the republican party become the party that restricts poor? i understand the tax cut for the rich is important to some people, but i feel the good thing would be unlimited in of government at the federal level. that has nothing to do with this. that would be more on the spending cuts. host: what do you make of the back a plan being reported by the new york times saying if we cannot come to some sort of deal, we should just passed tax cuts for the middle class americans and then fight later on for spending cuts and increasing taxes for the wealthy? caller: the tax cut for the general population is great. that would be good for stimulating the economy. but the big thing is hit there needs to be a balanced plan. we need more revenue and we need less spending at the federal level. what is good for california is not good for virginia and what's good for virginia is not good for maryland. maybe we need to focus on reducing the federal government overview. been there w

, louisiana. caller: good morning, steve and mona. it's time to stop carrying the water for the white house. with the rebels in damascus, isn't it too late? if you try chemical weapons in his own city, it's going to be worse for him, don't you think? host: is referring to a story that is on politico.com in what a lot of reporters are talking about the inauguration. guest: it's important to underscore the likelihood of assaad using chemical weapons may be quite low because it would, in fact, essentially be a suicide mission given the response it would detract from the international community. that being said, given the arsenal he has a and concerns about chaos in the country, it is a contingency that needs to be planned for. that is why i think we are seeing what we are. president obama's statement, and others after him, were motivated by u.s. intelligence reporting that suggested there was movement and potentially the mixing of precursors of some of these chemical weapons on site. there is concern about what could be happening and whether what they could be preparing. host: off of twitter.
. and i hope that beginning now when people hear fair share, they'll think abouter a flat tax. steve forbes has been talking about it for years. rand paul had an article out a year or so ago, flat tax. my friend, mike burgess, has a proposal. many of us have proposals. mine is, look, you talk about want warren buffett to pay what his secretary does, yet you haven't made one proposal that will bring warren buffett to pay what his secretary does. that's crazy. that's why we shouldn't eliminate the word lunatic. it really has application around this town. so if you want to have -- and warren buffett ought to take heed, you run around telling people, yeah, rich people should pay more taxes, well, he's not. he's not going to pay more. not on any of the proposals that the president has run around endorsing. well, how about a flat tax that says 15% capital gains tax, what warren buffett pay, 15% for his secretary, 15% gift tax. let's just go 15% across the board. 15% corporate tax. and the irony is that the economy would so explode, so many more people would be employed, so many more people
